Smaller funds sizes and evolving regulations which vary from country to country have constrained business growth. Amidst this scenario, the report discusses the key issues that confront MENA Asset Management Industry and puts forth policy actions which would help establish growth in the Industry for the long run.



In this report we have analysed the current state of MENA asset management industry in terms of industry architecture, market structure and fund performance. In-depth fund performance analysis based on geographical focus including alpha generated by the fund against respective benchmark and top fund managers based on AUMs being managed have been discussed.
